The Somerset Freemasons has rewarded the unit for its continued support to local young people with a donation of £3000.
The donation was received after the unit made a presentation to Freemasons on the benefit of the charity's work and the transformation that offshore voyages give young people. The Freemasons panel was particularly impressed by the accredited qualifications cadets achieve while offshore as well as gaining vital life skills such as teamwork, commitment, courage and leadership.
The donation will have a big impact on the cadets who might not usually be able to go on these courses due to the cost. We are extremely grateful for the donation and will be sure to put it to good use. Cadets at the unit can now look forward to booking on to one of the vessels in the offshore fleet.
